Meanwhile the competition has provided a nice distraction from Premier League matters for the Tigers as they recorded victories over Exeter City, Stoke City and Bristol City all away from home before prevailing over Newcastle United on penalties at the quarter-final stage.

Jose Mourinho, who has won this competition in each of his first seasons with former club Chelsea, has named a strong XI for Hull’s visit as Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Wayne Rooney, who could become the club’s all-time leading scorer with a goal tonight, all start.

In the opposite dugout the ‘special one’ will come up against his compatriot Marco Silva following his recent appointment at the KCOM Stadium and he’s handed starts to Josh Tymon, Tom Huddlestone, Robert Snodgrass and Adama Diomande.
